Sign petition in support of Dr. David Klein and academic freedom here!

 

Dr. David Klein, professor of mathematics at California State University – Northridge, has been attacked for hosting a website supporting the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) (http://www.csun.edu/~vcmth00m/boycott.html), and for launching a campaign to not resume CSU’s study abroad program in Israel, on the basis of Israel’s violation of Palestinian rights and the threat of discrimination against CSU students.

Please sign and share the petition at change.org to support Dr. Klein!

These attacks have falsely labeled Dr. Klein “anti-Semitic” and demanded that his website be removed. It is important to let Chancellor Charles Reed of the California State University know that Dr. Klein’s academic freedom and freedom of expression are very important and must be protected.

The US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel urges all supporters of Palestinian rights, the BDS movement, and academic freedom not only to sign this petition, but also to build upon David’s work, by starting campaigns to educate about the reality of Study Abroad in Israel¬† and holding events and activities on academic and cultural boycott on March 30, 2012 at their own colleges and universities. We also encourage academics and cultural workers to sign the USACBI statement: http://www.usacbi.org/about/
